Take Sounder and Link trains to Seahawks game on Sunday
Sounder and Link trains will operate to the Seahawks game Sunday evening
Seattle Seahawks fans can avoid holiday gridlock and take Sound Transit's popular event trains to the 5:20 p.m. game against the San Francisco Forty-niners on Sunday, Dec. 23. Special Sounder trains - in addition to regular Link light rail service - will run to and from the stadiums to serve crowds.
Inbound Sounder trains from the south will depart Lakewood at 1:50 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. The 1:50 p.m. train will operate to South Tacoma, Tacoma and Puyallup stations only before proceeding to King Street Station. A third south line train will depart Sumner Station at 2:37 p.m. and stop in Auburn, Kent and
Tukwila before arriving in Seattle.
Inbound trains from the north will leave Everett 2:15 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. Return trains to Lakewood depart 10, 20 and 45 minutes after the end of the game. Return trains to Everett depart 15 and 35 minutes after the game. Some trips may leave King Street Station early if the train is full.
Link light rail will also run two-car trains to accommodate crowds. Passengers are dropped off at Stadium Station just a half block from Century Link field. Link light rail serves 13 stations in downtown Seattle, SODO, Beacon Hill, Rainier Valley, Tukwila and SeaTac.
Complete game day train schedules are available at Schedules/Event-services.xml.
Regular fares will apply for all Sound Transit services. ORCA and all standing transit passes will be accepted. Getting an ORCA card is a great way to skip lines at ticket vending machines. Cards only cost $5 for adults, plus whatever amount a rider chooses to load in the card's E-Purse or the cost of a pass that is good for unlimited transit trips. ORCA works on trains, buses and ferries throughout the region. More information is available at www.orcacard.com.
